Monique Lhuillier - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) For fall, Monique Lhuillier channeled the “Modern Ballet Russe,” as she called it. The collection--shown in the Oak Room at the Plaza Hotel--was chock-full of the glamorous eveningwear that Ms. Lhuillier is known for. Heavy on embellishment, the gowns were a decadent departure from the economic turmoil outside the hotel’s walls. Several models posed in front of the Oak Room’s Bloomberg stock ticker, which provided a sharp contrast and fabulous photograph for the attending lens man. The styling, courtesy of Jill Davidson, was superb: bodysuits that looked like ripped stockings were layered under the ornate gowns to provide a depth to an otherwise pretty collection.
